Propaganda, Media, and Nationalism in Mainland China and Hong Kong gives a clear and insightful introduction to the nature of media in China and Hong Kong and presents a conceptual discussion of propaganda. It presents two case studies of Chinese media control including the presentation of Taiwan, Xinjiang, and Tibet and the misrepresentation of the pro-democracy movement in Hong Kong. This book also provides an important in-depth discussion of the battle between state propaganda and counter-propaganda in open societies, which can render them vulnerable to foreign governments, undermine civic society, and create dangerous polarization, as in the case of Hong Kong’s response to state media.
